Bosslady in Crisis Edition

On this week’s episode: Elizabeth, Jamilah, and Dan answer a question from a boss who is trying to figure out how her company can support employees who are caring for kids. They also talk with Slate’s Rachelle Hampton about student loan debt. She has some advice for parents sending their kids to college about deciding when and if debt is worth it.
